Since we are trying to calculate the number of cubic yards, let's calculate everything in terms of yards.

Converting inches to yards, we have to divide by 36, since there are 36 inches in a yard.

1 ' = 1/36 yard

Converting square feet to square yards, we divide by 9, since there are 9 square feet in a square yard.

3700 square feet = 411 square yards

Calculating cubic yards, we multiply 411 square yards by 1/36 of a yard.

I get 11.42 cubic yards. So you are safe getting 12 cubic yards.

Good luck,

Paul

Assuming that 20x12 means 20 feet by 12 feet, then you take the three values in feet - 20, 12, and .333 (4 inches is 1/3 foot).

Multiply these three numbers to get the cubic feet:

12 x 20 = 240

240 x .333 = 79.92

Now that you have 79.92 cubic feet, to get cubic yards you divide by 9 since there are 9 cubic feet per cubic yard.

79.92 cu. ft. divided by 9 = 8.88 cubic yards (round up to 9).

Multiply these three numbers to get the cubic feet:

12 x 20 = 240

240 x .333 = 79.92

Now that you have 79.92 cubic feet, to get cubic yards you divide by 9 since there are 9 cubic feet per cubic yard.

79.92 cu. ft. divided by 9 = 8.88 cubic yards (round up to 9).

How it Works
### Stone and Mulch Calculators

As an example, let's use 500 square feet to be mulched at a

3" depth.

### For Your Information

3" depth.

- First, the depth must be converted to feet. To convert inches to feet, simply divide inches by 12, the number of inches in a foot.

So for our example: 3 inches divided by 12 equals a 0.25 foot depth. - Now that we have the depth in feet, we can multiply the depth by the area.

So for our example: 0.25 foot depth times 500 square feet equals 125 cubic feet. - If you are calculating 0.5, 2, or 3, cubic foot bags, simply divide 125 cubic feet by the size of the bag.

So for our example: if we are using 2 cubic foot bags, we can divide 125 cubic feet by 2 which equals 62.5 bags. - If you are calculating cubic yards, we need to convert 125 cubic feet to cubic yards by dividing by 27. One cubic yard is equal to 27 cubic feet, see the diagram below.

So for our example: 125 cubic feet divided by 27 equals 4.63 cubic yards.

- 1 inch equals 0.08333 feet
- 1.5 inches equals 0.125 feet
- 2 inc

Square yards and cubic yards are units for quite different things, and you can't convert from one to the other. A square yard is a a unit of area and a cubic yard is a unit of volume.

First step - convert everything to feet - 5" is 5/12 of a foot

40 x 4 x 5/12 = 66.6 cubic feet.

Since a cubic yard is 3 feet by 3 feet by 3 feet, there are 27 cubic feet in a cubic yard.

66.6 cubic feet / 27 cubic feet/cubic yard = 2.5 cubic yards.

Good luck.

Since 4 inches is 1/3 foot (.333), you first compute cubic feet. The equation is:

2800 divided by .333 = 933.33 cubic feet

Next divide by 9 to get (cubic) yards:

933.33 divided by 9 = 103.703 yards

2800 divided by .333 = 933.33 cubic feet

Next divide by 9 to get (cubic) yards:

933.33 divided by 9 = 103.703 yards

Hi Bob:

1 cubic yard is 3ft by 3 ft by 3 ft.

3 times 3 times 3 equals 27, so

1 cubic yard equals 27 cubic feet.

2 1/2 inches divided by 12 inches equals .2083333 feet

196 square feet times .208333 feet equals 40.83333 cubic feet

40.83333 cubic ft divided by 27 cubic ft equals 1.5123456 cu yards.

Ta Da!!!!

AC is approx. 145 lbs per cubic ft.

there are 27 cubic ft in 1 cubic yard

60 tons x 2000 = 120000 divided by 145 = 827.58 cubic ft divided by 27 = 30.65 cubic yards

square yards would depend on thickness of AC.

you can take thickness x sq ft to get cubic ft

in concrete 1 cubic yard =

4 inch thickness = 81 sq ft or 9 sq yrds

6 inch thickness = 54 sq ft or 6 sq yards

there are 27 cubic ft in 1 cubic yard

60 tons x 2000 = 120000 divided by 145 = 827.58 cubic ft divided by 27 = 30.65 cubic yards

square yards would depend on thickness of AC.

6 inch thickness = 54 sq ft or 6 sq yards

42x30x12=15120 cubic inches

cubic ft 12x12x12=1728 cubic inches

15120/1728=8.75 cubic ft

that is just .25 cubic from being 1 cubic yard

cubic ft 12x12x12=1728 cubic inches

15120/1728=8.75 cubic ft

that is just .25 cubic from being 1 cubic yard

You have 4 X12X6X12X18=62,208 cubic inches so

62,208 divided by 231 = 269.3 gallons.

Hope that helps..................Pete
